My name is Reaper and I am the leader of an adult gaming community known as Corrupted Gaming. In this thread I will explain the reasons why our community is the right fit for you and what you can expect from our community.



First I would like to start with a little History of our community. We started out around 8 years ago where we jumped from game to game with a heavy MMO and FPS player base. We really showed how great of a community we were in SWTOR where we maintained a casual attitude to gaming, yet we were the first Empire guild to defeat the hardest content on our server and we maintained one of the most menacing PvP teams. Also we always make sure that each member who wishes to participate gets the chance, even if that meant that our main raiders had to sit for a week. With our success and all around attitude to the people we game with, we grew quickly and we only chose people to be in our community that fit our personalities. This was the same when we went into Wildstar and eventually became one of the top guilds on our server.



Now a little about what we look for in perspective members. Well we are a very social community, we enjoy talking ♥♥♥♥ to each other and having fun while we play together. Our main focus is Enjoy the company of those you play with. We always aim to enjoy ourselves and the people we game with so it is important that the people that we recruit have some social skills and aren't shy about talking a little trash. With that being said, we still expect new members to respect the veterans of our community.


We use Mumble as our VOIP this is because mumble has the lowest latency out of all 3 of the major VOIP programs and it offers the best quality of the 3. With these two VERY important advantages of mumble this allows for smoother communication during raids and PvP.



Now you may ask what our focus in Archeage might be, Pirating, PvP, Crafting, World Domination? Well the answer is YES. The great thing about our community is that our members are diverse in what they enjoy when they are in game. Our goal is to go into Archeage and play the game each of us wish to play. We also pride ourselves on helping each other enjoy the game as well. We focus on making the community stronger over the individual player. We expect our members to help make the community better, because if the community is happy, then the individuals are happy.

So if you read this and are interested in joining a zany/manic/sometimes demented group of individual please give us the following information and post in this thread.

Age
Name you wish to go by (We will call you this forever)
Intended Class and Path
Are you a little ♥♥♥♥ed in the head?
Do you have any skill that you can provide to the community? (Podcasting experience, photoshop, web design, guild banker, raid leader, etc) Tell us what you would like to contribute.
Other random attribute that makes you stand out?

We have been pirating more Reds than anyone else on the server.

Please don't call yourself a "pirate" unless you plan on actually becoming a pirate (i.e. get the infamy and come to Growlgate).

I'm getting tired of these East and West guilds calling themselves "Pirate" guilds.

We're planning on going pirate sometime after the 4th of September.

There's nothing wrong with being ready and loaded up with ships and gear before going pirate. If you go pirate before you're ready, you're just gimping yourself.

Also, this guild rocks. We've got a really good core group of people. We are looking for more dedicated members. If you're interested in joining us, message Dreadnaught, Pantheros, Falseprophet, or Maharat in game.

Don't think I've ever seen any of you. Looking forward to seeing more pirates once your scheduled date comes around.

Considering we all went pirates early, most of us are geared and we have tons of ships. You saying that going early is gimping yourself leads u to have no knowledge. Also, you can make your signature on the forums say -Maharat <Corrupted> in the settings on forums rather than typing it everytime. #protips

I heard that we were left behind in the crafting world. We should think about picking up a trade skill.

Isn't larceny a trade skill???

Troll all you want iLician :) We are taking things at our own pace. Plans to go pirate are in the works. Also, thanks for the pro tip. This is my first time even posting in AA forums and I rarely if ever bother with posting in forums anyway. Therefore I didn't even think to bother with setting up a signature in the settings.

Do you have any other pirate wisdom for us? (I am being sincere here). I'm interested in knowing what being a pirate is like and you have first-hand experience.

Well, i'd say get on Purple Dranks good side or stay east faction.

Honestly, just make sure your guildies have all the Hasla gear they may ever want before they become pirates. We have farmed Hasla tokens as pirates, but it's very difficult to do and mostly dependent on the zone being in war.

I also wouldn't give up any of the land you guys might already have. There's little to no land left on Growlgate (we own most of it at the time).

Pirate faction is fun, if what you're looking for is mostly PvP (either on the seas or on Freedick). We don't really lose out on any of the content in the East and West. Also, when Auroria comes out, we will have a zone we can PvP in all day where we don't run the risk of going to jail. The only major downside is finding groups to run dungeons. Fortunately, our guild can clear it when we're up to it, but there's not an abudance of people to do so.

Probably best advice for pre-pirates is. Get all your gear/ hasla done before you switch because it becomes a lot harder to do Dungeons/Hasla once you're exiled. It's not impossible, but it's way harder. Also I am pretty sure doing trade pack runs and all of that becomes VERY hard. So, understand what you're abandoning when you switch to pirate.

Thanks for the advice folks! Much appreciated!

If you're playing the game to do trade pack runs, you shouldn't go pirate. I would argue that doing trade runs is easier as a pirate, since all you do is steal others' trade packs without any consequences. We actually just ran our merchant ship into 4 fully loaded clippers, stole 22 packs, and turned them all in on Freedick.

Well good thing I showed up in time on my guilds escort mission and we delivered all our packs safely. It was fun :)

Nice try though.

Awesome. I can't wait until Auroria opens up. Intercepting folks on their way up there is going to be fun too :)

Why would dungeons be harder for pirates?

Dungeons are a safe zone you can TP to.

Only if you die to a player. As ilician mentioned they are safe zones.
